Forum: GratefulDead Subject: ASHES RISING -- Got You

hey hey hey....

an innocent little post draws you out...GREAT!....and you, you....you show the most love for the JGB here....but....november 11, 1973?

OH GOOODY GOOD GOOD....thanks man! this is my year, i have always called this era the PASTORAL DEAD...a combination of the sound system, the material and the feeling that came with donna and keith....just a very lovely grassy hillbound music, plain-jane amish post & beam stuff, little kids running around in homemade sweaters and people growing their own vegetables visiting on a sunday afternoon and complete lack of subtext....like what you get is what you get...no smoke and mirrors, just complete honesty...

BROTHER, here is a jug of wine and i will be around early on monday to help you fix the wagon wheel....

the dead went 100% into the country and blues-music roots in 1970, in performance and with the landmark workingman's and american beauty albums....it took 72 to get there, but in 1973 the group reached astonishing new heights -- the repertoire was getting that much bigger, and the vibe was that much more complete...keith was now fully incorporated into the sound and the songwriting reflected that. the result was (yet again) unlike anything before or since...the WAKE OF THE FLOOD -- BOBBY IS BORN (again)

black throated wind, eyes of the world, missippi half step and the weather report suite...GOD DAMN the music was so bloody earnest...black throated and then to lay me down in the first set....played as one really -- listen to this set.....

HEY ASHES -- thanks for reccomending this show from the winterland -- november 11, 1973....absolutely superb...i've never heard this before...just exactly what the doctor ordered

He Lives: your post brings tremendous warmth to a heart filled with cold rain and snow caused by an email sent from a wimp ("and his wife" --- wtf?) from here/Grok last week.

And unlike others you are being very kind in refraining from commenting in my delay from sending the discs promised over a month ago === they sit here beside however, being a perfectionist who is computer-illiterate, I refuse to send them until I can properly create the song list for each disc.

He Lives: once again you prove yourself to be a true friend. Pass the jug of wine around my friend; we can share the women, we can share the wine, however we shall never back-stab each other.... just the opposite: what's mine is yours.

You put the sun back in the sky for me --- thank you.

Hi Ashes - you have too many freinds to let someone's comments mean anything

Boys in the Barroom - Robert Hunter

Does God look down on the boys in the barroom
Mainly forsaken but surely not judged?
Jacks, kings, and aces, their faces in wine
Do Lord deliver our kind

From singing for whiskey, three strings on a fiddle
Four on the guitar and a song that I love
Many's the night we spent picking and singing
In hopes it be pleasing both here and above

Jack string fiddle to my sawtooth bow
Who loves loneliness, loves it alone
I love the dim lights like some love the dew
Only thing I wonder sometimes

Does God look down on the boys in the barroom
Mainly forsaken but surely not judged?
Jacks, kings, and aces, their faces in wine
Do Lord deliver our kind
